Validation!

So, not really thinking about it, I sent a couple of clips off to the Society for Professional Journalists Best of Colorado contest. Well, turns out I must be a real writer after all 'cuz today I got the news that I had placed in the Arts and Entertainment Review/Column category.

I won't know how I placed or for what piece until the banquet May 13. But it made my day anyway.

So, Woo!

  2. I sent my editor a sample column . . . it's up to them now. We'll see. I am getting more excited about the possibility.

  3. Kudos. Next stop, Pulitzer. By the way, does this mean you're both MSM and a blogger? Shouldn't we alert CNN or Howie Kurtz or something?

  4. Congratulations! Don't forget all the little people on your way to journalistic stardom.

    If such a thing exists.

  5. I'm only "MSM" inasmuch as I do reviews for community theatre and concerts (mostly for the free tix). I don't pretend to know the ins and outs of "real" journalism.

    I do, however, pretend to be a spaceman.

    But thanks for all the kind words, everyone . . . much much appreciated.
